Letters of Intent - Kickin' It

Joining up with King Julien for this week’s Letters Of Intent!



To Google Reader -

Google Reader 

What on earth did I ever do to you?!?!

I thought it was awful quiet in blogland for a few weeks, but witholding new posts for a MONTH is a bit extreme, no?  I was already trying dutifully to catch up on commenting on all the lovely blogs, when every single time I open the reader, more posts from August pop up?!?!

Which leads me to my next letter:


Dear Bloggers,

I’m so sorry for missing out on all the fabulous posts these past few weeks.  Blame the Google Reader.  UGH!


Your Desperately Trying To Catch Up Friend



Dear Itty Bit -

We REALLY need to get the hang of this soccer thing.

I’m somewhat cringing at the thought of the upcoming game… knowing that you still believe the competition is all about chasing someone, then falling down when they do.

As for practice?  Let’s check out a few moments from this week:

Stifling a yawn was a nice touch:

Umm yeah… this is only slightly inappropriate:


How many times am I gonna have to ask you to let.him.go?!?


Yes dear, you are very talented.  Please try the Cirque du Soleil demonstration after practice, k?


And your big brother finally intervened to try to help… and you were out there making clowns out of the balls…


(I am not admitting that I giggled hysterically with the rest of the moms)

But would you please, please, please start following directions?


And team pictures were another point of pride…



The Mom Who Knows Her Kid is Gonna Be A Crowd Favorite


And a happy Friday to y’all!

I really like the Jack-in-the-Box mascot replica... what are big brothers for?

Google reader has never done that to me. As Chris would ask, "What did you do to make everyone so mad?"

Itty Bit is cracking me up. He sure is enjoying himself out there! And you have it all on "film" to remind him of it all when he has kids and is going nuts w/them. :D

Thanks for linking up even though I flaked on you this week.

Google reader has done that to me several times. Which is really why I went to Wordpress.

Your son is so funny and cute! I like the pictures of him playing soccer.

Amy said...

Oh he is a DOLL! =) The crowd favorites keep it interesting. Otherwise you'd see a bunch of parents asleep in the bleachers ... especially now! We can barely cheer for our team! We NEED a rodeo clown!

Brandi said...

Love it! Oh goodness, that Itty is such a character. You will have so much fun watching the games! :)

He & Me + 3 said...

I love the team picture picture. Baa Haa. Class clown and always a crowd pleaser....sounds like another little boy I know. Too funny.

natalee said...

AWWW HE IS SOOOOO CUTE!!!!! LOL!! I love it!!!!!!!

Hey rachel, don't feel bad I don't get all the updates either. I just saw this one tonight when I went straight to our blog. Can I just say that Itty Bit rocks. he is so awesome and I know Blaze is so gonna be the same way. I want to pu t him in something but then I think OMG what is he going to do lol. Scary. We are most likely going with Tae Kwon Do. I am not that smart obviously. Or I am a glutton for punishment. not sure which. I absolutely love the pic of Itty Bit making clowns out of the ball and the one for the team pics. Hilarious.

Roaring!!!!!!!!!!!!! BG started ballet on Saturday!

Beth Zimmerman said...

I LOVE Itty Bit to bits and pieces! He is adorable! :) And he has even more in common with Josiah than I realized if that huge kid beside him is his brother. Josiah's siblings are 12 - 14 years older than he is so he was essentially an only child.

Tiffany said...

Oh good golly lady! You crack me up! What great blackmail for when he has his own kids.
